MS 915 is a learning community dedicated to honoring the potential of middle school students and to supporting each student’s growth, to exploration and creativity, to academic and personal excellence, and to social progress, engagement and justice. We are committed to the intellectual, artistic, moral, emotional, social and physical development of each student and we value each other as thoughtful co-creators of a vibrant, interdependent community.
MS 915 officially opened in 2019 at the Westinghouse High School campus on Johnson Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Our school was formerly known as MS 8 because for seven years it was the middle school of the K-8 school PS 8, The Robert Fulton School in Brooklyn Heights. In 2018, the School Leadership Team of the PS 8/MS 8 community successfully worked with the Department of Education to split the two schools so that each school could have its own focus, funding, mission and vision. MS 915 continues on the path that MS 8 established, now completely devoted to the education and upbringing of tweens and young teenagers.
